Hi,

Great blog. Just have a question about publishing/agents - how hard is it to get a New York lit agent in the United States, if you are an unknown author, and is it common for a NZ author to have a New York agent, and do they need one to sell their work overseas? I was just wondering, cause I have a friend that has a NY agent, with a well-known agency, and I am a writer as well, and was thinking if I should try and get one for my novel. My novel is a young adult novel, but does not have any New Zealand themes.

Thanks for your great blog, and happy new year!

Tom

Best to get published in NZ first Tom then have a crack at the US market. Just as difficult to get an agent as it is to get a publisher up here in NYC.
Happy New Year to you too and thanks for the kind comment.
